FTC to Host September Workshop in Washington, DC, to Examine Advertising for Over-the-Counter Homeopathic Products
My daughter has taken workshops on homeopathy, and she provides me information, as well as websites to consult. When I go to New Seasons grocery store, there is a homeopathy section, and the worker there is quite well informed. I have found tremendous benefits in the use of homeopathic remedies for various ailments and general health, with no side effects. The products also are much cheaper than pharmaceuticals. My experience is that the spread of homeopathy has not come through media advertising at all, but through word-of-mouth commendations.
